Video Transcript for Glacier Multi-Arm Adjusters Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Glacier Multi-Arm Rubber Adjuster for snow chains, 15 to 18 inch wheel size. Part number PW105. It's a quick an easy fitting with the simple hook design. The Multi-Arm, meaning all six of the arms will give us a nice even tension around our snow chain. This is recommended to use with a Glacier cable Twist-Link V-Bar or Square Length chains. We have a total of two adjusters in our kit, one for each wheel. Here it is folded up, so we have a simple compact design when in storage or not in use. Then we simply open it up, spread out the arms on the round link and just that quickly we're ready to install it onto our cable or snow chain.

One of the great features about this the design of tensioner is that if one of our tensioner breaks, we still have the other five holding tight versus a single tensioner design that if the tensioner breaks you lose all of your tension all the way around. Quick tech tip when installing your tensioner. To make sure that the hook faces away from the tire so it will go around the cable or chain and face away from the tire so that the hook itself doesn't dig into the side wall of your tire. There you have it for part number PW105. .

easy to install. They seem to be adequate for their use but have not used in the snow as of yet. For this reason only, I have not given a 5 star rating. 592215



- PW105
by:

The chains work fine... even though I've never had the cam tighteners before I think it's a good idea. The multi-arm rubber tighteners are okay but for me the tradition "rubber band" type of tightener is easier to use. One thing is certain, it is almost pointless to use the single tire chains on a dually. The unchained tire stays on top of the surface while the chained tire digs a hole until you worse off than before you tried the chains. Good point that I was aware of but I had the chains before I bought the dually. Good lesson for your future customers though. 331397

OK I gave the chains five stars without really trying them out. I gave the 5 stars for customer service and speed with which I received the product, also for their website that made it easy to find the right product. I purchased these for s Subaru Forester that regular chains don't work. We are headed to Colorado where chains or socks are relied to be in your car during winter months. I was leaning towards tire socks until I did some research and found the Utah does not consider socks as adequate. These chains, from the video seem to as easy to use as possible. Personally I hope I never need to use them! 450409

Used these in conjunction with my Glacier Square-Link snow tires; once installed on the chains, they keep them nice and tight. Enabled my 2011 Hyundai Sonata to get me home in 5 inches of snow at grade without a problem. 324609

These are a must have for tire chains they take up all the slack and make chains fit better, before I put them on was worried the chains would come loose and fall off. But once I installed them I was very confident they would give me the piece of mind I was looking for which they did, thanks again Robert at etrailer for your help. I am very satisfied. 464935

Chains are working fine, I used them only once, thankfully will put back in my trunk for the winter season, thanks for the email you just reminded me I have them in garage.

They are easier than the spring tensioners to install and so far , so good. Being rubber I do not expect they will last too many years, but that remains to be seen. The chains fit great and do what tire chains are supposed to do. Great traction on ice which we had to deal with in Maine early this year and my driveway is a fairly steep hill. 463232

I appreciate that you/your company does follow ups to purchases after a year. I think that is great. That being said, since ordering the tire cables/chains, it has not snowed enough to use them! I have saved this email and promise to review them once we actually get to use them. Thanks again!! 355519

Good news. The order arrived on the 6th day. To be sure they fit I did a test installation. I installed the Glacier PW1038 snow cable/chains on our 2016 Subaru Forester (225 -60R-17). The chains fit perfectly and on the 2nd notch. (See attached pic). the tighteners were easy to put on and really snugged it down (PW105). Bad news. I put the chains away and attempted to close the bag. The zipper on the black bag broke on first pull. Ouch!! love the fit, off the rim, close to the tire and away from other parts of the vehicle. very nice! Hope I don't need them! Cris T 467426

Had trouble getting out to get wood, a good amount of snow and ice underneath. Put on the chains and the old truck walked right through. We'll see how they hold up but I am very satisfied. 343757

by:

So far, these chains look like they will deliver. I wanted something better than a cable chain that only lasts one storm. In my local, we typically get freezing rain with temperatures in the 30's. These should be good on ice. Installation was fairly easy and the cam tensioners pulled the chains tight. I also ordered the chain tensioning bungie. 461514

These cable chains were purchased as a gift for my son to use on his 2016 Subaru Outback, so I cannot attest to the actual performance. He is headed to Mt. Rainier at the end of his week with wife and two little children. The Park requires chains no matter how many wheels are being driven. I can say that I enjoyed the shopping experience on the etrailer web-site and found the guidance on which product to purchase very helpful. After reading warnings from Subaru maintainers about the use of chains and possible problems, it took some coaxing to get me to buy. The videos were very helpful showing installation. A good shopping experience in all. 473527



- PW105
by:

The chains arrived sooner than expected and were easy to install on my 2015 Subaru Forester. Because of the clearance between tire and wheelwell this chain was recommended. The video,which shows them being installed on a 2015 Subaru Foresters rear wheels,contradicts the owners manual which tells you to install them on the front wheels. The price was very reasonable. The multi arm adjusters I feel are a necessity and should be included with the chains at an additional cost. Finally, I have not tried them out yet but am confident they will give me additional traction in snow. etrailer is a very reputable company and I highly recommend them. 411323

I'd purchased some other "chains" that were supposed to have plenty of clearance for my Subaru, but they didn't. In fact, they wouldn't work at all on the front wheels, which is where Subaru said that they should be used. And then I came upon the etrailer site and there was a video of a woman installing the PW1042 (or similar) "chains" on a Subaru. Based on the pictures, and the video, these "chains" looked like they really would fit my Subaru Outback, so I sent back the first "chains" I'd order from brand "A" and ordered "chains" and these star-shaped rubber "adjusters" from etrailer. With normal (cheapest) shipping, they arrived in a few days and I tried them on, on my car. (I have a carpeted garage, and I know, "weird," but that's the way the garage was when I bought it, so, well, I have a carpeted garage -- doesn't make me feel bad about trying on things like "chains" and then sending them back, since all they would have run over is carpet.) Anyway, the pw1042 "chains," not being split like the ones I'd previously ordered from brand "A" were harder to put on, but they weren't THAT hard. And the pw105 "adjusters" did a good job of tightening everything up. It looks like a good setup for occasional (more or less emergency in my case) use. The six-armed adjusters don't offer the single point of failure like the circular rubber adjuster that came with brand "A's" "chains." I assume that's a good thing, though I'll admit that the one thick circular rubber adjuster with multiple clips does look sturdier than the six-armed pw105 "adjusters." I worry about the pw105 adjusters having the rubber break at the center ring and/or at the outer metal hooks. I haven't used the "chains" yet, and hopefully I won't find out if this is a real weakness, or just a perceived one. But, like I wrote, there are six independent arms, and if one breaks, it would be easy to stop and cut it off and then continue with the remaining arms. I think as few as four, maybe only three arms would be sufficient to keep the "chains" snug and secure. 296406

No snow or ice in a year havent used them but did put them on again, just to make sure I could still install them when if the time comes. Im still a happy customer.

Called the company on a Monday morning looking for tire chains. The employee that answered the phone explained all the different options I had to chooses from and he helped me pick out the chains the would best fit my needs. I explained to him that my father and I were leaving for a trip in a couple of days and we would need to get them before we leave. The very next afternoon the product was on my front porch. Excellent customer service and and extremely fast shipping. Thanks Troy 337350

I was always getting stuck on driveways and side roads. Having these in my van have saved me from a few situations already this past winter. They go on and off easily. It was helpful to have a matt to lay on so I didn't get wet or muddy. I would, however, recommend a dry run first. 449483

I ordered the snow cables for my Subaru 2018 Outback and received them in 3 days! Your customer service is outstanding! I reordered a second set and received them in 4 days. I just had a chance to use them in Atlanta when we had ice and snow. I used only one set on the front and they worked perfectly. i watched the etrailer installation video for a Subaru and it made the easy to install. It took me less then 5 minutes in my garage. (Outside in the snow and ice might take longer). I drove around Atlanta in the ice and snow and the cables performed flawlessly. I plan to buy a set for my daughter. Thanks again! 467947

Bought a new pair of Glacier spring tire cables with the adjusters. They arrived in California within a few days. Product purchased for our 2017 Subaru Outback since these are the only authorized tire traction devices for Subaru vehicles. Sold our former Outback after 17 years and 200,000 mile of excellent service. These are almost never necessary on Subaru cars with the rare exception of ice ink conditions on which you can't even stand up. The CHP flags Subaru cars thru without added traction devices because they really aren't needed. A CHP officer once flagged us out of a line of cars being turned around in Truckee when I-80 was closed over Donner Summit because of too much snow and motioned that we were the exception to the rule and were cleared to head on home. 325207

Per the Subaru technical manual, while tire chains are not recommended, if needed S style spring chains can be used on the front tires only (2017 Technical Manual, section 8-12). While I hope to never require them, I live in Washington State. When the roads are severe enough, chains are required to be carried for at least two drive tires. This is especially true for National Parks such as Hurricane Ridge where weather conditions can change rapidly. National Parks require chains be carried for such conditions during winter months. After watching the etrailer video for installation of chains on a 2015 Forester, I purchased a set of PW1038 Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains and PW105 Multi Arm Truck Tire Chain Adjusters. I have test fit the chains with adjusters on my front tire and they appear to be a good fit. I turned the tires hard right and hard left and checked my clearances and found no interference with the fit. Unfortunately, there is no snow for me to do a test run at this time.  Please note the etrailer video test fits the chains on the rear tires and the Glacier instructions specify installation on the rear tires for all wheel drive vehicles. This information is inconsistant with the 2017 Subaru Forester Technical Manual for front tire installation only. 455034

The product is easy to install they're easy to use. the only issue I had as you can see in the photo. The first time I went to use them one of the bungees broke off in my hand.this however didn't stop me from using them since there are six bungees total and they work good keep in my tire chains tight. Disclaimer, I never tried to return the bungees and I never called the company to complain I just use them as they were because they still function well 604704

Well, the surest way to avoid the worst of storms is to buy some snow chains. I purchased some, installed in my driveway to be prepared for a roadside install and since carrying these chains have yet to encounter the need in many a winter trip across the plains and into the Rockies. While the chains are great these tensioner make me confident that the chains will stay in place so I needn't worry about damage to my vehicle. I'm confident this setup will work well should a storm ever challenge them. Bring it on! 596632

These tensioners didn't last a season. They were too small, though I ordered the size recommended by their guidelines. They rotted within a couple of months, and one of the bands broke. I would never buy these again! I have, however, had good experiences with previous interactions with etrailer. 590776

These work good. I use them on a skid steer to keep the chains tight. I needed to find a pair that was the right length. To help others, when they are not stretched out, the measurement from eyelet to opposite eyelet is 16". The previous ones that were the next size up started to rot out after 3 years from the environment and needed to be replaced as the rubber will break. 588776

  • Our fit guide has two tire sizes as stock for the 2018 Honda Odyssey, the 235/55-19 that you referenced as well as the 235/60-18 you have and there are certainly snow tire chains that are compatible. I took a look at the owner's manual for a 2018 Odyssey and it does say chains should be placed on the front tires only and that there is limited clearance. Due to that you will want a Class S compatible chain such as the Titan # TC1555 that you referenced. A similar, Class S compatible...

  • Cable Style Tire Chains for 225/65-17 Tires on a 2017 Subaru Outback
  • Your 225/65-17 tires on your 2017 Subaru Outback will require a different size set of cables. You would need # PW1042. I have linked a video review for you. I also recommend rubber adjusters # PW105 to keep the cables tight and in place. You will need to use the chains if there are road signs indicating they are required. Other than that if you sense any slipping at all or feel unsure then it would be a good idea to put them on.

  • Cable and Square Link Tire Chains for 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • Yes, generally it is the vehicle drive wheels that most benefit from installation of tire chains. But some auto makers may determine that tire chains should not be installed on certain models, trim levels or tire sizes. It all comes down to clearance between the chains and the components within the wheel wells, such as brake lines and suspension parts. It is therefore always best to check your vehicle owner's manual for guidance about use of tire chains before selecting and installing...

  • Why Does Ford Exclude Tire Chains for 275/65-18 Tires on a 2016 Ford F-150
  • When a vehicle manufacturer states that chains cannot be used it is generally because there is a potential clearance issue between the inner sidewalls and vehicle components. However, in some places chains or cables are required by law. Since a vehicle manufacturer or dealer cannot tell you to break the law you would have to use a traction device of some kind. Cables such as # PW2028C which fit your 275/65-18 tires usually require the least clearance. For them I also recommend using...

  • Recommended Snow Tire Chains For 2016 GMC Acadia With Little Clearance
  • For your 2016 GMC Acadia with little to no clearance, you will definitely want class S compatible chains. There are three different size tire options for a factory Acadia, so I'll give you the best recommendation for each size. For 255/55-20 Tires, we currently do not have any Class S options. For 255/60-19 Tires, I recommend the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains - 1 Pair # PW2028C. This is the only Class S option we have for this size tire, and they are a decent tire chain. They...

  • Recommended Tire Chains for a 2016 Jeep Renegade with 215/65 R16 Size Tires
  • You aren't alone. A lot of vehicle manufacturers are erring on the side of caution and putting dislcaimers on using tire chains. Basically, this keeps them from being responsible if any damage is caused by the chains. It doesn't mean using chains will definitely damage the vehicle. But you do need to be careful when selecting them. I recommend choosing tire chains that are Class S compatible. Class S chains are designed for vehicle that have a small amount of clearance between the...

  • Adding Links to Tire Chains and Recommended Tire Chains for 2017 Subaru Outback
  • Depending on the type of tire chains you have, you may be able to add a few links on the inside to better fit your wider tires. As long as you have the proper tools and make sure the added width and links don't interfere with the truck's brake line, this should work just fine. Please note though that making any alterations like this will likely void the warranty on the chains. With that being said, since it sounds like you have been using these chains for a while, it may be time for...
